Tico Time River Resort

Rise and Vibes 2023

MAY 19-21, 2023


Rise and Vibes seemingly has it all: reggae, a river and a Costa Rican-inspired resort between New Mexico and Colorado.

Rise and Vibes brings together reggae and the river in a three day celebration at Tico Time River Resort: a Costa Rican-inspired RV resort that marries the mountains and the beach. From May 19 to 21, genre fixtures like Matisyahu, The Movement and Kabaka Pyramid will headline while a sweep of activities take over the Animas River between Colorado and New Mexico

Three water activity areas populated by bathing suit-clad, bucket hat-wearing festivalgoers are great for kayaking and paddleboarding, and a 130 foot water slide appeals to the thrill seekers in the crowd. Take advantage of Tico Time River Resort’s 18 hole frisbee golf course between sets, or follow one of the hiking trails through the Animus River Valley. 

While off-site lodging is available, Rise and Vibes is best experienced at one of its campsites. Walk-in Magical Forest Camping puts attendees in a charming woodsy setting a short walk from the main stage. Additionally, family camping, car and RV camping and VIP glam tent rentals are available to those looking to enhance their experience. 

The Specs:

  • 3 day GA passes start at $199 for the super early bird price, and 1 day GA passes are available at varying prices. See the full breakdown here
  • Walk-in camping is included with an entry ticket, and other camping packages can be purchased at an additional price. See the full breakdown here
